Jamaica’s Goat Islands are the center of what has often been portrayed as a classic development-versus-environment conflict.

The Goat Islands are not the best site for the transshipment port!

An international study shows there may be better, cheaper and less environmentally damaging alternative sites for the proposed transshipment port and logistics hub.

Kingston, Jamaica: The Conservation Strategy Fund (CSF), today announced the findings of a cost-effectiveness assessment of four potential sites for the proposed transshipment port that China Harbour Engineering Company (CHEC) is proposing to build. CSF’s recommendations were presented to a group of senior decision-makers at a meeting at the Courtleigh Hotel today.

Consumers slashed their energy consumption and solved the crisis. The rains eventually came and the outages faded into memory.
